Sentinel by Jennifer L. Armentrout Blog Tour/Giveaway


All Godly things must come to an end and in this case, I´m talking about the covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

Sentinel The Final book on this series Is just around the corner (Nov 2nd) and I´m dying to know how it all ends. At the same time I feel sad, I´ve invested a long time and emotion on this series and seeing it come to an ends it´s hard. lets call this a bitter sweet moment.

 
 
This series has made me laugh, cringe and cry, I´ve drooled over, loved and hated some of the characters, and as a truly book lover I can say that this is what makes a book or a series stand out. When you get so immersed in the story that you feel that what is happening happens to you and affects you on an emotional level.

That's why today I´m going to take you guys on a journey through the book that was a deal breaker for me. It´s not my favorite book on the series but is the one that made fall for one of the characters and changed my previous views of others.

so today on my blog we are going to go over...


Aiden St. Delphi will do anything to save Alex. 
Even if it means doing the one thing he will never forgive himself for. 
Even if it means making war against the gods.

Elixir is a small Novella (74 pages long) but it is every bit as intense as all the book in this series. It changed my views. Being 100% honest up to this book I wasn´t Team Aiden, I was a sucker for Seth, troubled bad boy Seth had my heart and I always said I liked him better that he was a good guy and I was sure that he was the right choice for Alex.
 
Then... I read Elixir.
 
From that point forward Seth became the focus of my anger and disappointment, he wasn't even close to the man I thought he was. Aiden became the glue that held everything together and suddenly I understood why.
 
He balance Alex, he is her perfect opposite and is willing to sacrifice everything and more to see her happy, to see her safe. He hurts, he cries and fights with nails and teeth to be a man of honor, he makes Alex a better person, she makes him a better person.

So, as part of my post I´m going to show you my favorite Quotes from Elixir. here we go...

I moved so fast I Startled her. My hands shot through the bars, clasping the sides of her face. My forehead pressed against the cold bars and my lips were on hers. The kiss was hard and fast. Angry. Desperate. She went still unsure of how to respond. "Because I love you, I won´t release you"
 
This scenes where the hardest for me seeing the pain it caused Aiden to have her in a cell but having to keep her there for her own safety. How her words made the deepest wounds and see him struggle to contain himself.
 
"You don´t know shit. You sure as hell don't know the lengths I will go to keep her safe" I dropped him and he slumped against the wall. "and if that means killing one half-blood to make sure nothing happens to her, I won´t hesitate."
 
Protectiveness and desperation. My heart broke a little every time he had to turn his back on his friends for her, always for her. what he went through in this book was a nightmare but only he was strong enough to pull through.
 
Pain Sliced through my chest. "My name is Aiden..." I choked as the back of my throat burned. wetness gathered in my eyes, clouding Alex´s face. The words burst out of me "My name is Aiden, and I am your master" "You will obey my every wish, desire and command to death"

One of the things I admired the most about Aiden was his strength, cause although causing Alex any kind of harm is against his nature and his love for her, if it needs to be done in order to help her he´s willing to crush his soul and rip his heart out.

I stood before them. "The only way for Alex to break the connection is for her to do so herself. No one - no god, no magic- can do it. She has to. And I believe she can if the chance"

Aiden´s trust in Alex opened my eyes to what he is really about. His will to fight for her even against herself, his unconditional love and  his hope that , their love is strong enough to conquer even the impossible, showed me his true  colors and opened my eyes to the true nature of Seth.


For JLA
After writing the series from Alex’s POV, what challenges did you face writing from Aiden’s POV in Elixir?  
It was hard to get into Aiden’s head because he was more of a challenge to write than I anticipated.
 
For Alex
Um…seriously girl, if I ever hear “My Seth” again, I may puke.  Is there anything about that time that you want to remember?  
No.  Well, except Aiden because he believed in me. 
 
For Aiden
Where does your strength come from? Standing up to Alex and even the Gods, you were a rock during Elixir.  How did you do it?  
It was all for Alex.  I love her and I wasn’t giving up.
 
For Seth
During the time where you didn’t know where Alex was, what were you doing to find her?  
Everything.  I was gonna find her.
